Shakes or Wobbles problem
2000 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 90,000 miles

no shake until we replace brakepads, rotors. Now we took out cv left hand shaft and it looks fine. Balljoints, tye rod ends look fine, ball joints play 1/8", had to heat rotors to get them off but we onkly heated rotors in stud area. Now a violent shake when turning

WHEEL BEARINGS Turn off air suspension switch (if equipped). Switch is located behind right rear quarter panel. Raise and support front of vehicle. Remove wheels. Reinstall 3 lug nuts to secure rotor to hub. Check hub nut for correct torque. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS. Using a dial indicator, measure axial end play at hub. Maximum axial end play is.003" (.08 mm). If reading exceeds specification, replace wheel bearing assembly. Page 1 of 1 FRONT SUSPENSION - 4WD TORSION BAR -2000 Ford Explorer 3/29/2009
Use of heat may have ruined the hub bearing!
